Gents: I do not want to give my correct phone number for anyone to enter in their database. How can I use Sync w/o giving my true number? 2. I thought I had Sync set up previously but now it always hits me with the 'enter your phone number' which is a dead end for me.
3. I believe when the Support page is asking for my Yahoo email logon (for some reason) that it is linking my Yahoo with this support site instead of allowing me to use my normal logon. Is there a way I can check and be sure that these are not linked, and that I didn't miss some asterisk B.S. somewhere about "you are now giving support.mozilla or whatever was using this, to link my yahoo account?

I attempted to reuse the Chrome fix that was successful for previous versions, but that did not work. I want my Tabs on the Bottom where "I" put them, not they way Firefox thinks I am supposed to have them I am sure others are having the same difficulty.

I've been using Firefox for a while and I came across some great extensions. I would like to give each of them a rating to help other people find better extensions, but there seems no easy way to do so. On Google Play you can review installed extensions in Play Store easily by click each of them and use the one-tap rating button. On iOS, if you allow them, App Store will even prompt you a one-tap rater after you've installed some app and used for a while, which is even more convenient. I wonder if Firefox (could) have the same experience. Without it, it's harder to encourage people (who wish to spare the time) to involve in the rating system.

Ever since my first ever use of FireFox the setting to "update" has been set to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".
Yesterday I clicked to accept the latest update (to 71.0 I think) at which point the programme simply crashed without warning.
I went through various processes to try and resurrect FF, but without success --- FireFox would not run.
I eventually resorted to installing Version 65.0 but, despite the update settings being set as above, Version 71 kept installing and making FF a "non-starter" again.
I made an alteration to the "about:config" which seems to have stopped the automatic updating, albeit the "FF Icon" still wants to function as "Updater" and I get a message (when started) saying FF is unable to update to the latest version - "click here to download etc.," which of course I don't do and FF continues to perform as expected - albeit 65 and not 71.
Is there a problem with Version 71 and (possible) Win 7 64 bit ?
How can I reconfigure the "FF Icon" to simply start the programme (version 65) in the normal way and not get involved with it wanting to update all the time?
Another peculiarity that has arisen is that, when I try to change the Default language from American English to British English I receive a message saying FF cannot change as it is not online. (Version 65 and it is definitely online)
I have carried out system scans for Viruses etc., perform really in-depth un-installations of FF, and no new applications have recently been installed.

The laptop is running V 69.0.2 and somehow, the desktop got on the beta channel (which I have since changed) and is running V 70.0b12. I copied the working userChrome.css file from the laptop to PC, but it just isn't getting read. Anything else that needs to be changed? I hate tabs on top!

I have done everything that is in the support answers, but to no avail. When I open FF in my jalopy (10 yr old computer), all my current bookmarks, and history for the past 5 years are still there. After copying the profile, and the entire Mozilla folder (separate attempts), and over-copying the folder in my new computer, there is no change; the files only go back to when I first installed FF on it. None of your support answers say anything about whether to copy the jalopy files into the local, or roaming folders, so I copied it into both. Still no difference.
In a related migration/replace problem, I cannot sync my new computer with the old, even though they're both in the same account name. The jalopy and new computer names are both recognized in the jalopy, but the new computer doesn't pick up the old computer name. This was the first thing I tried to reconcile the two machines. I am extremely frustrated, and at my wits end dealing with this problem. Any reasonable assistance and solutions are appreciated. Thank you.
P.S. If there is a response, will I receive an email or message on my FF account, or do I have to read through 800 instances to find the answer?

Master password had been working fine for months now. This week, all of a sudden, Firefox will open and function without asking for my password.
After a few minutes it will ask for the pass.... and then it will repeat every 10-15mins to ask for the password again.
(This is only some sessions. 1 out of 3 maybe. The rest of the time Master Password works properly, just like before.)

My Tabs toolbar used to be under my Links toolbar. It is now above the Address toolbar.
How do I put my Tabs toolbar back where I want it (not where Firefox arbitrarily decided to put it)?
Alternately, How do I go back to FireFox 70.0.1?
System: Windows 8.1, 64-bit
FireFox 71, 64-bit
Note: My laptop (Windows 8.1, 64-bit) has Firefox 70.0.1 (but wants me to "update" (sic)). It has the tool bars in my preferred order. I'm not about to "update" until I know how to fix FireFox 71.

I had 2 Firefox browsers that had a bunch of tabs open. I mistakenly clicked a link in Outlook that opened Firefox for that webpage. I quickly closed it from the toolbar, realizing I might lose all the other tabs, and I did lose them. I had at least 14 in one, 16 in another, and is there any way I can go back and retrieve them? Does Firefox keep any backups of open tabs so I can get to them? I had so many open, there's no way I can remember which ones they were, because I multitask like crazy. Now, I'm afraid to use it at all, just in case the more I do, the more the previous sessions will be lost. YIKES! I just moved, got my computer back up and running, and now this. I could chew my own arm off for this. Can anybody out there help me?

Got updated to FF71 and my Tabs which I had moved under address bar got moved back above the address bar. (Had moved them under by creating userChrome.css file which no longer works) Is there anyway I can get the tabs again to display to under the address bar? It's just so confusing with the tabs on top. I appreciate any help!

The main reason I wrote this post is to ask the question that comes at the end of this note. If you scroll to the end, you can see it marked as MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS POST IS TO ASK THE QUESTION BELOW.
As I was posting the question, I took advantage of the moment to reflect on the fact that FireFox's perseverance over its long history of ups and downs today has made FireFox one of the real hopes for humanity. Long Live FireFox!
Back in the dark ages, before the ascendance of Google's Chrome browser, I learned to recover FireFox's guts, to cope with its gastric spasms of projectile digital vomiting, which seemed to occur every few weeks. Most software in those days contributed full shares to the unusable stew, made the accumulation of digital barf that needed cleanup as often as I needed to clean up after hangovers from over drinking when I was a stupid youth. Those were the days when running a computer all day without being forced to restart taught me to weild Windows Task Manager as weapon, which usually provided a side step around enough of the binary vomit top cut restarts from 4 a day to only one or two.
Years later, while Microsoft was recovering from the largest, most expensive public mistake in software history (Windows 8), Google got a handle on Chrome. After that, around 2014, Google either found Popeye's spinach factory, or aliens joined them in their Mountain View offices, because no human force can account for the rate and quality of significant upgrades to all their systems since then, for Chrome browser, underlying Chromium technology now used by everyone, not just for browsers, but all manor of application software to run on all kinds of platforms, Android for phones and apps, YouTube video processing that spots copyrighted sound and images in every video that has it, the world-leading advertising systems and dashboards, and their search engine so much better than anyone else's our choice is to use Google Search or be stupid and slow, or use Google Maps or be lost. Google pumps out new and better software features one hundred times faster than any other organization. If you missed the media reports explaining this, that is because Google's super productivity has not been celebrated in anything like the degree warranted.
Unfortunately, Google also has become so evil it probably cannot be prevented from destroying the system of human checks and balances invented in the United States 240 years ago. As simple and feeble as those checks and balances are, without them it is hard to see how any substantial part of the human population ever could have experienced and lived with Liberty and the productivity it makes possible. For example, without the Liberty growing throughout the world after taking its initial root in the United States and our written Constitution, one of the most ingenious and consequential documents ever written, the normal result of military conflict would have been one murderous, tyrannical, wholly self-serving dictatorship or another forcing 99% of the human population to live as serfs or slaves in the involuntary service of people like you know who. Google and the rest of the power players in commercial media are destroying that, through political bias they lie about. The problem with their lies is they have the power of their media platform to perpetrate them. Google is evil and needs to be neutralized. The main thing I can do about this is to stop using their products. The other thing I can do is tell people about what is happening. I was raised to see things this way, but for until recently, I did not see this is the way we have to look at things because this is the way that works. Until recently, I did not know society cannot stop functioning, but now I know that the functioning we all take for granted, including the people fighting against it, is rare as diamonds when viewed in the context of human history, Some of the people attacking our country want to break it down, because they want the United States to become like the places people now leave in order to come here. The sickness is the same that has affected all gluttons for power. They have learned that force of military arms tends to galvanize people like you and me. Instead, they lie to us. pretending to harbor the same loves for life you and I have, when in truth they see us is idiot patsies, making us deserve their the damages wrought by their treachery.
Therefore, I stopped using Chrome, returning to the FireFox way of browsing. I was with Chrome so long, I forgot all about recovering browser profiles. FireFox is a lot more reliable today than it was before Chome blew everybody out of the water, but its profile system still ha regular bouts with projectile digital vomiting.
Today, my FireFox is not blasting bile all over the house, but is being rather brave holding the contagion within itself. I noticed passwords not filling into web forms that used to be there. I am not sure of the timing. I probably was a long time ago, but I kept getting messages from FireFox babbling about their new security system.
Today, I needed to identify active profile (i.e., the one I use) from the half dozen profiles piled into my FireFox installation. I don't know why there is more than one. Unfortunately, I just could not glean the one I need to look at from their names:
b2uzr27w.default-release-1/ n34593ht.default-release/ n6gdm7r8.default-release-1/ q412vz1p.default/ uiaqaxwu.default/
The online guide provided the usual waste of time. I asked the computer how to know which profile is the active one. I immediately found thousands of articles which each spell out the same eight or ten reasons why a person might wish to know which profile is active. The people writing these articles know their articles are filled mostly with spam (information we already have or don't need), but their editors are evaluated on word count, needed for diluting the concentration of ads in their publication. It's been years since the ANSWERS were easy to pick out of spam portions of the articles they appear with. From this agony-inducing swill I found information that looked like it might tell me how to spot the active profile. "Look for ".default" as part of the profile name. So I looked again,
b2uzr27w.default-release-1/ n34593ht.default-release/ n6gdm7r8.default-release-1/ q412vz1p.default/ uiaqaxwu.default/
All of the profile names contain ".default."
MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS POST IS TO ASK THE QUESTION BELOW. Then I noticed the dates
Months ago b2uzr27w.default-release-1/ Months ago n34593ht.default-release/ Two days ago n6gdm7r8.default-release-1/ Today q412vz1p.default/
Evidently, two days ago, FireFox ditched my profile and gave me a new one. This leads to my question, my reason for posting this thread:
In other words,
Why did FireFox ditch my profile and give me a new two days ago?
I understand, you probably don't know why in my particular case. I am hoping for reasonable guesses or possibilities.
